August 2009 advice to the Secretary of State

We were asked by the Secretary of State to explore what scope there was for sharing back office functions across the nine health professional regulators. We took ‘functions’ to mean any part of a regulatory body’s activities. We found that there were three streams of functions with the potential for sharing: business and support, policy, regulatory activities. However, there was no complete agreement and no further conclusions or recommendations could be made.
